Overdoing it!

Thursday, June 02, 2011      8 comments

I'm not doing very well on my goal of blogging 3 x week. I have certainly learned that it is easier for me to blog when things are going well than when I'm having trouble. It should be the other way around but it isn't. I AM learning some... Read more

Moving Forward

Thursday, May 05, 2011      5 comments
